Here we go again. The weather was too kind today, sweltering heat for the first Retriever Assessment Day. Scent wasn’t brilliant but I was delighted to see Wales’ top handlers, from near and far, turning up.
We had 14 qualified Retrievers, running in pairs, having to complete 6 Retrievers in total, with crossing over single and double fences, plus crossing water and retrieving from water.
Another 6 dogs are to be seen early on this coming week, while tomorrow we are off again with the spaniel team assessment.

A big thank you to all the helpers, John and Mark.
